It seems that embracing the suck has been taken to a whole new level.

Had some blood work done to check my Test levels. I thought they were low and i was right, 253. I'm not sure what my true level is since the amount of stress i am under right now is enormous (read next point) and cortisol will suppress your T levels, not to mention I'm having trouble sleeping. I knew something was up when i just wasn't seeing the gains i was expecting at the gym. Either way I'm going to try and get on some TRT regardless so i can at least feel a little better. Hopefully when some of this stress resides ill have a normal resting T level.

To top it off i finally pulled out of my wife that she cheated on my physically. I killed the puppy immediately, but i am a broken man at this point. I'm in a daze of shock still after 11 years of being with her.

I am going to move into another apartment closer to my friends and work, continue to lift, sidebar, and progress. I have no other choice but to improve.

Any recommendations are appreciated and thanks to anybody who has commented on my threads.

At the beginning of the year I went in for a check up and tests after a nutrition assessment projected a few things. Low testosterone was part of the results.

Turns out there’s some history on my dads side; shitty sleep and testicular atrophy. Knew I had to start getting my act together.

Increased my vitamin D. Your body can handle absurd amounts of vitamin D after some research I started taking 5000units a day. My vitamin D was low anyway. But testosterone won’t get produced with out it.

The next was diet. Plant-based with good fats, avocados, Brazil nuts, organic meat.

Then improve my sleep. Set a regular bedtime (10:00) set my alarm to at 9:00 to get ready for bed. Limit my blue light consumption before bed. Started sleeping with an eye mask (creating total darkness). Meditation right before bed and right when I wake up. Cold showers right before bed (super crappy but works like a champ). Stretching before bed as well, helped get me outta my head and into my body before meditation and settling down.

Of course lift. Particularly deadlifts.

As you’re seeing with the lack of gains everything needs to work together. Take some time for each and get hem dialed in before moving on. The biggest culprit for me was sleep. I took six weeks just focusing on setting up the routine and creating the habit.

Within 4 months my T was up 100%. It’s possible. Just gotta take the steps.

I’m in the US. What do you recommend for getting Brazil nuts shipped? I can’t find them anywhere nearby, and I live in the middle of nowhere.

[–]matrixtospartanatLVRed Beret3 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy

Really?

Google Nuts.com

Found that for you in 10 seconds.

You do the rest.

Asked for a recommendation, not a third grader who figured out how to use the Internet last week. Google vs. a recommendation from someone who might have something useful to say? Easy to pick which I’ll listen to first. Keep trusting them if you want.

[–]matrixtospartanatLVRed Beret5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah, well...

Fuck.

You have been given a gift.

Do not give it back and do not throw it away.

You are not a broken man.

Life has just finished surgery on you and your terminal disease has been removed. This shit fucks up a lot of men because they are afraid of the surgery.

You are ~7 YEARS from your peak SMV and you will be able to embrace it...

IF....

You get your shit together, keep your shit together, and don’t fuck up again.

Lift and sidebar.

Lift and sidebar.

Lift and sidebar.

The universe has just given you some gigantic gifts, just in time for the holidays!!!

Freedom.

Knowledge.

Truth.

And all at a young age.

DO NOT FUCK THIS UP!

That’s the big picture.

Right now the microcosm of your perspective only feels the pain of your loss, even if that loss was a cancer eating at your soul that had to be eradicated before you succumbed to your succubus.

1 year from now, only 1 fucking year, you will look back on this event as being the best thing that ever happened to you.

You had the courage to walk away.

You have what it takes to keep moving forward to the kind of life few men ever truly know.

Lift and sidebar.

You, if you put in the work, are going to be fucking awesome!!!

Now go forth, and...

SLAY

Sorry to hear about the cheating, at least you are not one of the dumbasses who comes in here trying to fix it. You broke it off, possibly your first truly masculine act for some time. Take a bit of time to grieve but do not stop taking care of yourself. Eat right, go to the gym, contact old friends, try and get a social life happening. Don’t give yourself too long to sulk, just acknowledge the pain and go through it, not around it. Start planning the next stage of your life. If the next stage of your life is going to be a sequel then make it better than the original. Give yourself a bit of time to gather your wits then get to work. Gym, your occupation, your social life. Learn game, make new friends, seize life with both hands. Most of all, once you get over the grief, enjoy it. Single men can do so many things that married men cannot. Start making some plans to do the things you always dreamed of.

As I effect and navigate my divorce, you are absolutely right

[–]johneyapocalypse0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

That's solid advice.

Too long to sulk can become way too long too sulk.

Most of all, once you get over the grief, enjoy it. Single men can do so many things that married men cannot. Start making some plans to do the things you always dreamed of.

Jesus.

Lift. Lift. Lift.

I hope you are squatting with reps and sets. Fuck the idea of maxing out just lift.

Same with the deadlift, use it as a whole body routine

Sorry about the bitch, but good for you on nexting her

[–]470_2_700_nm0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

1st year of 5x5 done consitantly (save a vacation week here and there) has a remarkable effect on body mass and testosterone.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Good job on dropping her ASAP. That puts you ahead of the game by far compared to what you normally see.

This is a chemical burn.

It seems that embracing the suck has been taken to a whole new level.

It will hurt more than you've ever been burned and you will have a scar.

To top it off i finally pulled out of my wife that she cheated on my physically.

Stay with the pain, don’t shut this out.

I'm in a daze of shock still after 11 years of being with her.

Don't shut this out. The first soap was made from the ashes of heroes. Like the first monkeys shot into space. Without pain, without sacrifice, we would have nothing!

I'm not sure what my true level is since the amount of stress i am under right now is enormous (read next point) and cortisol will suppress your T levels, not to mention I'm having trouble sleeping.

Stop it! This is your pain, this is your burning hand. It’s right here!

I killed the puppy immediately, but i am a broken man at this point.

No! Don’t deal with it the way those dead people do. Come on!

I am going to move into another apartment closer to my friends and work, continue to lift, sidebar, and progress.

This is the greatest moment of your life, and you’re off somewhere missing it.

I'm in a daze of shock still after 11 years of being with her.

Listen to me. You can run water over your hand and make it worse, or -- look at me! -- or you can use vinegar and neutralize the burn.

It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything.

I have no other choice but to improve.

Congratulations, you’re one step closer to hitting the bottom.

Same answer to your last post. Stop being a lazy fuck. Read the sidebar.

[–]SgtSilverBack0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Yup.

I had my blood work done a while ago and it was 267. Good news is, with the right doctor, your whole world will change.

Time to truly focus on you. Fix yourself physically and you will have a big mental gain also. While you didn't make her take another cock, I'm sure you can see what actions lead to it being a likely event. So forget about her, turn your life around and be awesome.

You've been given the gift of hitting rock bottom in the relationship. Now you can focus on what your priorities are. Have you been posting in OYS?

[–]thunderbeyond0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Hell man what a situation. No doubt there's going to be a lot of emotional energy - anger, rage, doubt, confusion. You have to always remember to channel these into some sort of - any sort of - positive output.

Others have given you plenty of ways to do this.

A real man is forged from the hottest of fires. You got this.



You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
